Local Organization Teaches Young Children How To Swim
According to the U.S. Center for Disease Control and Prevention nearly 4000 infants and young children drown nationally, and another 12,000 suffer permanent brain damage from nearly drowning.
But, one local organization is trying to reduce those numbers by teaching both infants and parents water survival techniques. The Marion County Infant Swimming Resource is teaching infants and kids ages six months old to six years old aquatic self-rescuing skills such as holding their breath, going under water, rolling onto their backs to float, and swimming.
